Abstract:
A desk based assessment was carried out by Peter Thompson of Archaeological Solutions Ltd. Little is known of Isleworth in the prehistoric period other than stray finds from the Palaeolithic and Neolithic and some occupation evidence relating to the Bronze Age and Iron Age. Further to the north a Roman Road ran from London to Staines although there is little other evidence of a Roman presence This relative dearth of archaeology might in part be due to a lack of consistent recording of finds when Isleworth began to grow in the 19th and early 20th centuries. A settlement centred on the manor of ‘Gritleworde’ recorded in the Domesday Survey probably existed through most of the Saxon period and is located to the north-east of the assessment site around Church Street and North Street. A Late Saxon coin hoard of the reign of Ethelred probably relates to a battle fought against the Danes near Brentford in 1016. In the medieval period another manor of Worton is recorded to the west of the assessment site while in the 13th century both manors held extensive demesne lands used for arable farming. A park is also recorded running between Isleworth and Twickenham to the south but it is not known how far west it extended towards the assessment site. In 1421 Henry V founded Syon Abbey to the north-east which leased out the old manors and cultivated their lands including an area known as the Dairy-house lands.
